Your success guide to the next wireless revolution
The next watershed innovation in wireless technology is here: IEEE 802.11 wireless local area networks (LANs).
Recent studies from IDC indicate that the Wi-Fi wireless LAN market will likely account for ninety percent of projected LAN equipment revenues by 2005-a trend that promises to spill over into home wireless networks. Yet this amazing growth has also created confusion: Which version of 802.11 is best for vendors and end-users? What about solutions such as the a/g and a/b combinations of the 802.11 standards?
In World Wide Wi-Fi: Technological Trends and Business Strategies, Teik-Kheong (TK) Tan and Benny Bing provide a clear, accessible road map of the Wi-Fi wireless LAN market. Unlike most books on wireless local area networks (WLANs), this must-have resource explains both the business and technology of WLANs, and offers ready-to-use tactics and strategies for thriving in this lucrative field. Along the way, you'll also gain insight into the emerging Wi-Fi standards.
World Wide Wi-Fi presents:
